Requesting permission to use AWB on the articles you've edited[edit]

Hey, is it okay if I go through your contribution list with AutoWikiBrowser to fix up some more identical references that need to be consolidated? I'm asking this because I'm worried you might get annoyed by me flooding your watchlist with potentially dozens of notifications (according to AWB, you've edited 97 distinct articles so far). If I don't, they'll probably be fixed up by other editors over time, but I was thinking of getting them all out of the way at once which I feel would probably be the least obtrusive option (since you can just click "Mark all changes as seen"). Up to you, though. Ionmars10 (talk) 00:04, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

@Ionmars10: Go ahead, I'm okay with it. Thanks for the help. PCommission (talk) 04:37, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
No problem, all done now. Ionmars10 (talk) 05:33, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Culture of the Philippines[edit]

Hey I am sorry to have reverted your edits on Culture of the Philippines, but you were a bit too eager with the delete button. We should simply seperate the mythology and the religion parts, not remove information about the mythology. Mythology could be a seperate subsection in a different area of the article than the religion subsection. Glennznl (talk) 19:45, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

@Glennznl: Thank you for your concerns. I combined the "Anitism" and "Indigenous religions or shamanism" because both are essentially the same concepts. They are both part of the Indigenous Philippine folk religions. I did not remove the entire content of the latter, because they were not found in the former, so I instead inputted it in a new sub-section that would suit it more. Also, seeing that the section is about religion, I made edits that would fit the narrative, where the focus is about the indigenous religions, not the mythology. On the matter of "mythology" possibly having leeway to be inputted in a separate sub-section in a different area in the article, looking into it, I agree that there is such a leeway. It can actually be inputted as a sub-section under "Literature". With that, I propose (1) to revert your revert on my edits regarding the matter, and (2) to input a sub-section under "Literature" which would pertain to Philippine mythology.

@Glennznl: Since it seems you no longer have any further concerns regarding my proposals, I'll go ahead with the edits. PCommission (talk) 23:41, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
@PCommission: Sorry I think I must have missed it or forgot to reply. It looks good to me now. Btw why did you remove the line "concentrating in the Cordillera Administrative Region, Palawan, Mindoro, Western Visayas, and Mindanao.", it seems relevant to me. Glennznl (talk) 08:08, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
@Glennznl: I tried to make the statement as concise as possible using the previous content of the section. Also, it seems that certain practices are still concentrated and performed not just in those areas, but also in Sorsogon, Siquijor, Eastern Visayas, the Sulu archipelago, Cagayan Valley, and even in parts of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, Ilocos region, and Bohol. So I removed it while combining sentences thinking that if I retained and expanded the phrase to cover all areas properly, it would only create a discursive sentence. Which is why I removed it instead, so that the sentence overall will be more compact and incisive. But if you think it should be included through another concise statement, definitely you can do that too. PCommission (talk) 15:51, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

My recent re-edits of some of yours[edit]

Hi. I've just reverted or tweaked a couple of your recent edits to the Philippines article. Some of your edits which hit my watchlist recently caught my eye and I've looked back at a few of the large number of edits you've made recently there. By far, the majority of those I looked at me struck me as improvements -- better done than my edits typically are. The ones I've touched struck me as exceptions among those few at which I looked. Cheers. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 12:50, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

@Wtmitchell: No worries. And thanks for helping improve the article as well. PCommission (talk) 12:55, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
